Ksenia's Romanticism in Fashion II

Romantic mood has always been a strong in fashion, trying on new styles, shapes and silhouettes; flower appliqué and print are new romantic styles. Key style features include sheer layers, lace, ruffles and playful frills that send the message: sensual romantic lady.

Beautiful girlish dresses, blouses, skirts are my favorite alternative to practical parka dresses and folksy frocks.
The dress is romantic by definition therefore if you want to be more feminine wear more dresses.

From dreamy flowing maxi dresses with exotic and floral print to short baby doll or Empire line dresses, from evening cocktail dresses or floral silk muslins, perfect for summer days, Romantic fashion is irresistible.

There is a lot of gothic "widow" black lace and pastel rococo lace. But, my favorite one is the "vintage" lace in beige and gray shades that looks like you found it in an old hope chest. You can make your own shiny lace by following the pattern with metallic thread.

Eastern European rich crafts and folksy influences create tunic dresses, peasant hats, short kimonos with flowing sleeves make for a chic “back to the nature” look. Paisley patterns or border prints with strong bands of color, lacing, embroidery and piping, smock shapes and square yoke necklines, ruffles, flounces and full sleeves; handicraft textures like patchwork styled smock frocks.

From luxurious embroidered jackets and evening gowns to day dresses, skirts, trenches and even pants, velvet proved to be quite a versatile fabric. So hurry up and get your own velvet piece. I don’t know what to say about pants but a simple dress or a fit short jacket in dark rich hues will never go out of date.


One-shoulder dress became lovely draped toga-like tunics, dresses or maxi gowns. One-shoulder dresses can have a cinched waist and a just below the knee hemline.
The long, draped goddesses gowns have soft, sheer, fluid fabrics and a studied simplicity.
A bejeweled belt or shoulder details are the embellishments.
